Scoring an easy win

Despite all the talk about sportsmanship, people love easy victories.

When Singapore was gripped by the fervour of the Tiger Cup from 1997-1998, fans would often look forward to the match between their national players and the Brunei national squad. With a great disparity in skill levels, fans expect a score of nothing less than 10-0. If they do, then the coach would have angry fans to answer to.

In war histories, the most remembered battles are those when one side inflicted an extremely heavy toll due to the utter inability of the other side to defend themselves. Yet we praise them and study their tactics.

Twice, we were invited by boys in LAN shop to play a match of DotA. When we replied that we are still learning the ropes, they would claim that they too, are just newbies. The first group laughed themselves silly whenever we got killed. The second group had the cheek to suggest a match between 5 of them against 3 of us. When we insisted on a fair number, they sent their weakest member over. Whether he was dying on purpose during the game was something I wondered.

--this post is brought about by Kelly's complaint: one of the disgusting guys finally dragged him into his first game of DotA but refused to team up with him...

Little kids squabbling

For several days, I have been taking the behaviour of two of
BarbaryCoast's friends quite personally. At first, when they started attacking Barb's style of play, I enjoyed it. However, I soon find them lacking in sportsmanship and they are free with barbs, taunts and insults. I got mad on his behalf and while though Barb doesn't give a damn, he welcomed my partnership versus them.
They call us
noobs. I intend to use our streak of wins against them to stuff their mouths.

Current situation:
-We're playing a 5v5 match. Barb and I are the good guys. Coldsg is on the evil side. His buddy is absent.

-Zeus has fallen

59:xx [coldsg] (Troll): zeus u noob

59:55 [SeNDohAkirA7] (Zeus): i never say i pro

60:00 [Joran] (Destroyer): stop calling names

60:06 [coldsg] (Troll): kp lah
60:13 [coldsg] (Troll): not happy.. fuck off

60:17 [Strife88] (Magina): ..

60:19 [SeNDohAkirA7] (Zeus): you the one who started the kb
60:22 [SeNDohAkirA7] (Zeus): look who talking

60:24 [Joran] (Destroyer): everyone can see your game ethics

60:28 [Strife88] (Magina): chill..

60:32 [coldsg] (Troll): i say

60:39 [SeNDohAkirA7] (Zeus): anti u the best
He means Strife88

60:39 [coldsg] (Troll): not happy fuck off

60:42 [Strife88] (Magina): -.-

Barb chose to sit out of this little fight. His defense against them is to stay mum. I'm the one getting outraged...

We won :)
Too bad we have to kill Strife88 (Magina the anti mage) along with the ugly troll.

Sunday's Dota Fest - Ow....

[post has been edited]

After playing 10 games, my right index finger doesn't feel so well.

The highlight of last night was playing against a team that included two obnoxious players. They thrashed us silly, called us noobs. They conveniently forgot that they had the advantage of greater numbers. We played cat and mouse with them. We won. Priceless.

Some players are apparently plucked out of the stone age. When you tell them to stop insulting other players and show some sportsmanship, they'll laugh and ask, "For pros?..."
Oh joy.

I was idle in the channel, watching TV. When I returned, I saw strangers type these

Where did that come from?...

Trek personality test

There's something wrong here...

Extrovert? Me?
The rest seems to be in-line with my own self image but why am I not a starship captain?
